Death By a Thousand Cuts

Taylor Swift

My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my

My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my

Saying goodbye
Is death by a thousand cuts
Flashbacks waking me up
I get drunk, but it's not enough
'Cause the morning comes
And you're not my baby

I look through the windows of this love
Even though we boarded them up
Chandelier still flickering here
'Cause I can’t pretend
It's okay when it's not
It's death by a thousand cuts

I dress to kill my time
I take the long way home
I ask the traffic lights
If it'll be alright
They say: I don't know

And what once was ours
Is no one's now
I see you everywhere
The only thing we share
Is this small town

You said it was a great love
One for the ages
But if the story's over
Why am I still writing pages?

'Cause saying goodbye
Is death by a thousand cuts
Flashbacks waking me up
I get drunk, but it’s not enough
'Cause the morning comes
And you're not my baby

I look through the windows of this love
Even though we boarded them up
Chandelier still flickering here
'Cause I can't pretend
It's okay when it's not
It’s death by a thousand cuts

My heart, my hips, my body, my love
Tryna find a part of me
That you didn't touch
Gave up on me like I was a bad drug
Now I'm searching for signs
In a haunted club

Our songs, our films, united we stand
Our country, guess it was a lawless land
Quiet my fears with the touch of your hand
Paper cut stings from our paper-thin plans

My time, my wine, my spirit, my trust
Tryna find a part of me you didn't take up
Gave you so much, but it wasn't enough
But I'll be alright
It's just a thousand cuts

I get drunk, but it's not enough
'Cause you're not my baby
I look through the windows of this love
Even though we boarded them up
Chandelier still flickering here
'Cause I can't pretend
It's okay when it's not

No, it's not
It's death by a thousand cuts
(You didn't touch)

Tryna find a part of me
That you didn't touch
My body, my love, my trust
(It's death by a thousand cuts)
But it wasn't enough
It wasn't enough, no, no

I take the long way home
I ask the traffic lights
If it'll be alright
They say: I don't know
